Storyline

LAPD lieutenant Mike Harrigan (Danny Glover) and his cocky detective partner Jerry Lambert (Bill Paxton) soon realize that what seemed a bloody feud between voodoo high priest King Willie's (Calvin Lockhart) Jamaican gangs and Ramon Vega's (Corey Rand) Colombian drug gang is actually the work of a scary third party. Peter Keyes's (Gary Busey) federal team shields the crime scene even for the LAPD, but after forensics proves it must be an alien, who keeps making victims, the chase brings them all together.

Trivia

The subway attack scene was directly adapted from the first Predator comic book series. The producers thought it was cool, and wanted to use it in the film. See more »

Goofs

When Harrigan fights The Predator on the rooftop. The Predator activates his wrist bomb which Harrigan stops from blowing up by cutting off The Predator's hand. Surely, The Predator's wrist bomb would have still detonated when Harrigan cut off The Predator's hand. In "Alien Vs. Predator", when the Predator activated his wrist bomb and removed it, the wrist bomb detonated and blew up the pyramid.

Harrigan didn't just cut off the Predator's hand, he also cut through the bomb device itself, which effectively disarmed the bomb. In the overhead shot of the predator falling, sparks are seen bursting from the bomb segment which has remained strapped upon the severed hand. See more »

Crazy Credits

When the Elder Predator throws Harrigan the flintlock pistol he says "Take it". Harrigan reads the inscription "1715" ... the subtitles on the DVD regard the Predator as 'mumbles incoherently' but the Predator, being from a society based on trophies and the hunt, just witnessed Harrigan make a kill and not take a trophy. He is calling Harrigan a "heathen" See more »

"The Lions. The Tigers. The Bears. Oh My..."
2 June 2004 | by DarthBillSee all my reviews

Underrated, interesting sequel to the Arnold Schwarzenegger hit has Danny Glover trading in his user friendly Roger persona to play a rougher, tougher, more kick ass cop who fears heights and goes one on one with a new Predator, who has some new tricks to share with the world when he lands in LA during a wave of both crime and heat.

Danny Glover may not be Schwarzenegger but he is quite good in his role as the cop.

The action is well mounted and the big difference of having the Predator in a city VS the jungle makes for some very interesting atmospheric moments and what not. There's also some SEX! Something that was sadly missing from the first film. The first film is better but this is still a worthy action film in its own right.

"Seems he has a taste for beef."

"I didn't think he was a vegetarian."
